Sensitivity of p-process nucleosynthesis to nuclear reaction rates in a 25 M. supernova model
The astrophysical p-process, which is responsible for the origin of the proton-rich stable nuclei heavier than iron, was investigated using a full nuclear reaction network for a Type II supernova
Constraining the astrophysical origin of the p-nuclei through nuclear physics and meteoritic data.
TLDR
The main part of the review focuses on the nuclear uncertainties involved in the determination of the astrophysical reaction rates required for the extended reaction networks used in nucleosynthesis studies.
Theory Considerations For Nucleosynthesis Beyond Fe With Special Emphasis On p-Nuclei In Massive Stars
Nucleosynthesis of heavy elements requires the use of different experimental and theoretical methods to determine astrophysical reaction rates than light element nucleosynthesis. Additionally, there
